Down for me again. Becoming a pain this
Ok for me too. But I found a Firefox alert up top right, wanting permissions for the app. If you haven't seen one, might be an idea to look.

It's working ok for me. Have you recently had a W10 update?

All ok now thanks, must have been a minor glitch

I emailed but I haven't heard anything. Still won't accept my card for my subscription renewal. Had to change it since I lost mine and had to replace it. Sigh. No W10 for me. It's a head scratcher.

Is Book Report just really struggling these days?

My ranks page rarely loads. The review page just stops loading. For a while it wouldn't sync with Author Central. Now it shows it does but doesn't update the review page.

I've uninstalled, reinstalled, relinked and everything else I can do. I'm using Chrome.

It's frustrating because I was quite excited to use the rank tracking feature alongside my ad spending to see if I could move ranks. But I can't even get it to display ranks most days.

Mine is super flaky, too. I'm thinking about cancelling because double the price for something that now comes with less functionality isn't good value to me.

Down for me again today.

I'm starting to wonder if it is worth persevering with...

Yes. Hasn't updated in about 6-7 hours for me. I sent an email to Liam.

I don't know how I'm supposed to be obsessive over my sales figures if this stuff doesn't work right.

So the app hasn't been updating properly today, but because of that I was screwing around with the settings, and finally got it to connect to my author central page.

The rank feature is pretty darn cool!

Hmm. It's been working just fine for me.

I have had it not load sales once or twice, but in both cases when I went to the KDP page, it had logged me out. Once I logged back in, it was fine.

I have noticed that it's no longer showing me all my books, even though I have the 'show table rows with no activity' set on yes.

Feel good romance with a touch of magic.

Has Bookreport stopped for anyone else for July's figures?

Historic figures are displaying okay, but today's (July) are stuck on 'Loading'

Yep. Looks like it's down at the moment. It usually comes back up in a couple hours.

Its July 1.

I wonder what Amazon just changed?

2 reasons for book report to go nitenite: 1. Liam changes something. 2. Amazon changes something. Last time was Liam.

So fed up!

I'm now paying twice as much for something that's half as good!

This one wont be Liam's fault. Its almost certain Amazon have changed their report formats. Possibly for Aussie gst, but it could be a more general change for taxes all over.

Since Liam cant know they are changing the files until BR falls over, he's only had a few hours so far to find out what changed.

This is one of those times, when we have to give him time to adapt.

It's been down since midnight for me. I refreshed it at 12:00 am to see the month of June's totals, and that was it. It's now 7:00 am PST. Hopefully it will be back up soon.

This too, for me. I was excited about the changes and willing to stick it through during that transition, but it hasn't been working correctly for me for at least a week now. I can't get the mobile app to show anything; the desktop version isn't pulling data, and even when I update it manually, it doesn't work correctly.
Unhappy, especially withe the substantially increased price. :(

Yep, at exactly 12:00 EDT it stopped working. TBH, Amazon's dashboard is flaky today, too. But on the bright side, Liam billed me on time this morning! :P
